, connecticut, or new york were so many still suffer. we are a nation that seems to be, whether it be by the leadership of our elected officials, whether it be the president or others, we seem to be focusing on victimization. we seem to be focusing on victims rather than those who are prevailing. we are focusing less on what we do with honor and great, great sacrifice to achieve much. instead, we seem to be focusing on those that would limit us and that that which is the worst among us. lori: you have focused any times about leadership and lack thereof. interesting that time .2 a leader. lou: i hope not too many people are. lori: my point is, we do not have a choice at this point. lou: well, we do. the president, after all, is just the president. the speaker is just a speaker. we are fundamentally americans. americans are despite all still a classless society. people are trying to divide us. they are trying to segregate us. i do not mean that in a civil right way. we are a nation when combined. we will stand up to any challenge. we will prevail. unfortunately, our leaders and th
as the new york times said today as the tragedy in connecticut has softened the times. maybe it takes something like this to get the congress and the president to work on things. there does seem to be a spirit of compromise now brewing. i'm not just talking about the end of the year, but any time. the president perhaps holding off raising taxes for those who make $200,000. especially when coupled about this rumored embrace about spending cuts. that could turn the fiscal cliff into a fiscal hop, skip and a jump that ends up in an exciting place. there are other forces at work today that show you the magnitude of what a deal could mean for our great country. the other forces? the transports, banks, u.s. treasury bonds and gold. first, you know i like to watch the transports as a measurement of economic activity. you know it has to be shipped somewhere to be sold. that is why i follow the transports so closely. when they are going up it means there is more commerce happening than thought. planes, trains, truckers and shippers going higher, that above all, is a terrific predictor of growt

, connecticut, for all the good this nation has done to lift up children we still have much more work to do. so, mr. speaker, before i get into my remarks about the bill, i first want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the victims and their loved ones struggling as we all are to understand this senseless assault on children and their educators. and while newtown is rightly receiving the nation's attention, what goes unnoticed far too often is the number of children that die each year in this country as a result of abuse and neglect. sadly their deaths often come at the hands of those who should be caring for them the most. state reports indicate that more than 1,500 children in the u.s. died from abuse or neglect in fiscal year 2010. and research shows that these reports may significantly understate the actual number of these fatalities. congress should do what it can to prevent these tragedies which is why this legislation is before us today. this legislation is a result of careful bipartisan work over the past couple of years. in 2010 i requested that the government accountability office,
